What's the over/under that the Tigers are sellers this year?

They're still .500 and have played the toughest schedule to date

I know. But, I just don't get the warm n fuzzies about this team anymore. I think we missed our window. I just think it's time to make some moves that no-one, including me, really wants to make.

Come trade deadline, I think we need to sell Verlander, Kinsler, Miggy, and VMart.
We should be able to get 4 top prospects for Verlander and 4 for Miggy. 2 or 3 for Kinsler. And 1 for VMart.

That is anywhere from 10-12 top prospects to infuse youth into our organization. And would also drop a lot money from our payroll.

Its too hard to project right now as some of the hitters really need to warm up and since it appears there is another starting pitcher or two waiting in the wings that could help out quite a bit in Norris and Fulmer.

You won't get top prospects for JV. You would have a tough time getting someone to bite on Miggy at 30M per. And certainly, nobody is giving you jack poop for an old Vmart who can't play the field and can barely leg out a double that would be a standup triple for a none else in the league.

No hitting and no pitching makes for a sucky club. The Tigers aren't hitting and their starters outside of Zimmerman have sucked butt (ok, JV threw a nice game and got shafted by the O)

The fact that we got 3 very good prospects for a 2 month rental in Price, that Toronto did not even try to resign, would suggest that we could get at least 4 prospects for both Verlander and Miggy, who are under contract for a few more years. Both of their contracts were huge ,when they signed them. Not so much anymore.

Yes, VMart would have to go to an AL team that could use a DH Upgrade.

There's only like 5 or 6 players making $30M+ per year and the tigers have 2 of them. Yes, thos contracts are still absurd...except Miggy, no contract will ever be absurd for Miggy

Fulmer might get his 1st Big league start if Green can't go in his next scheduled start.

Post Re: 2016 Tigers
The defense is sooooo horrible. Pelfrey sucks, but damn, the defense cost him 3 runs today. A missed CS by Iggy, poor positioning and a rather weak attempt by Iggy on a grounder, and Nick couldn't even catch a relay to throw the runner out at third.

Terrible fundamentals.

Verhagen has been awful. They need to send him down for pretty much anyone. A whip well north of 2? Come on. The guy is leaving the ball way high in the zone and getting hammered, yet he's pitched in 11 games and given up 9 runs on 19 hits.

It's official. Tigers call up Fullmer to make his major league debut on Friday.

I'm really getting annoyed with J-Up. He's struck out 35 times in 82 ABs (with 4 walks and 1 dinger). I'd rather see Aviles getting the starts in LF and J-Up on the bench for a few days. This is getting nuts.

Hell, for comparison, Moyà has 15 Ks in 70 ABs and has 5 dingers to boot.

I didn't like the Upton signing when it happened. I knew we paid too much for him. I also thought that we could have signed Cesspades for less. And several people told me that Upton was a better fit and that there was no way Cesspades signs for less than what we paid Upton. 2or 3 days later, Cesspades signed for less than what Upton got.

True, but his babip is .319 right now. Not really sustainable. He's also cruising at a 40%+ K rate.
